    Selling our first house, stressful!

    We are almost a week away from hitting the road and making our way across the country to Idaho from Indiana! Exciting!
    Got the house on the market last week, first time ever selling a house. Bit nervous and stressed, just the unknown of how long it might take etc.

    Wish us luck

    Good luck! And don't stress as long as your Realtor knows the market and prices it realistically it should move quick enough.

    I would have been tempted to look at it Shark, but being retired sort of dropped my income. I have always liked log homes.

    Thanks guys, I think it's priced very fairly (ever priced out a hand built log home?)

    We are moving to Coeur d' Alene area (dang I still have issues spelling that haha). Just hoping for decent weather as we drive out!

    Wow Nate, that is a long time! Thoughts like that scare me...

    Hope you get that house sold soon. What brings you to Coeur d'Alane? That's a nice area.

    Coder d'Alane is a vey nice area. I visited friends there once in the summer for a week and once in the winter for a week. So I got a good idea of what it's all about. Lake Coder dAlane has a floating golf course green, way cool. And I went up in a small Śea plane with pontoons and flew around the lake. A very scenic lake with forest all around it with high dollar cottages and lake side homes. Amazing lifestyle on the lake if you can afford it. Many other lakes around for all water sports. And there are plenty of ski resorts around with easy access to Canada skiing. I imagine the mtbing would be a big thing up there as well. Definitely one of my favorite areas in the lower 48 that I've been to.

    Check out this link is exactly what I saw from the sea plane. It may even be the same company it's been 15 years since I did it. But what an awesome experience above that lake.

    Seems like a very nice scenic location with some good elevation and decent trails in the area.

    Coeur d' Alene was great, from what I remember ~20 yrs ago.

    If I recall correctly, that golf green DJ posted can be moved around on a grid of underwater cables to change the yardage. And yes, you take a boat to the green after your tee shot.

    As for the house, GLWS!

    I've been through there a couple times myself and really like the area. I've been meaning to take a mountain bike trip there over the years but haven't made it happen yet.

    That floating green is crazy! Let's just say I probably need scuba gear to retrieve the lost balls.

    I hope to get into fishing a bit more once we get out there.
    Got lucky with work, position opened up out there so jumped at it. Always wanted to live near the mountains.

    The area is covered in lakes and trout streams plus the huge Lake Cour d'Alane lake that's posted above. Awesome place!

    The Navy actually used that lake for submersible training in WWII, IIRC. It's very deep. Could be some kind of Loch Ness monster down there!

    Dude, you're going to love the mountains. And yeah, if you're going to N Idaho you're going to need a fly rod. I love stream fishing.

    Although I know what you mean, I've always chuckled at the phrases like "stream fishing".

    I've fished in streams many times...but I've still never caught a stream.

    And you call yourself a fishermen. You haven't lived until you've caught a stream. One hell of a fight, especially a class 5 rapids stream.
